got from rick santorum, remember him, was a political overture wrapped around the idea of buying made in the usa christmas presents. yeah, rick santorum, it wasn't about evil obama care or how horrible it is that gay people want to get married or some imagined war on religion or any of the others rick santorum skm shtick, it was all about buying made in the usa stuff. i am thankful to report that the republican governor of iowa, terry branstad, is suggesting that the iowa republican party should get rid of its straw poll. not suggesting getting rid of the iowa caucuses, just the straw poll. which is not a real poll or a real election of any kind, just a republican party fund-raiser, where republican candidates bribe people and bus in people from all over the state for a big fake contest that the national media threat as a real thing. the iowa straw poll means nothing. it is a hoax that the republican party of iowa perpetrates on the country and the candidates every year, and the media goes along with it, every year, even though we all know that's true. but now the republican governor
the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president did a good job. but we saw this once before. remember when charlie crist, the former governor of florida, ph
. finally romney ended up one on one with rick santorum. iowa where romney appeared to eke out an eight-vote win, a few weeks later santorum was declared the victory and then ohio. >> we are actually looking at recount provisions in the state of ohio. our models have it that close. >> romney's struggle in ohio was in the 2008 op-ed called for a managed bankruptcy but said the government should only guarantee private loans. detroit needs a durn around not a check. the piece was titled let detroit go bankrupt. romney survived the primary gaunt let and let republican super pacs hammer the president on the hair. the campaign spend a lot of time defining romney before romney was able to define obama. he was criticized for taking a week off in july. and for bungling that foreign trip to england, israel and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce the bump he needed. as the focus of the race turned to medicare and the ryan budget. the republican convention was disrupted by weather and a guy talking to an empty chair. and then mid september, the leaked video of
polls before self-destructing. finally, romney ended up one-on-one with rick santorum. and the two primary night that is kept us up the longest will be the states that will keep us up on tuesday, iowa, and a few weeks later santorum was declared the victor and then ohio. >> we are actually looking at recount provisions in the state of ohio. our models have it that close. >> romney's struggle in ohio was partly rooted in the 2008 new york times op-ed he wrote just weeks after obama won calling for managed bankruptcy but said the government should only guarantee private loans. quote, detroit needs a turnaround, not a check, he wrote. the piece was entitled "let detroit go bankrupt." romney survived the primary gauntlet and let republican super pacs hammer the president on the air. the campaign spend a lot of time defining romney before romney was able to define obama. romney was criticized for taking a week off in july for campaigning about the obama's strategy and for bundling the trip to israel, europe and poland. he announced paul ryan as his running mate but that didn't produce t
. >> bill: yeah, right. and then we remember rick santorum. he does have this man on dog -- we know -- when it comes to anything gay. >> marriage is what marriage is. marriage existed before there was a government. it is like saying this glass of water is a glass of beer. it's a glass of water. and water is what water is. american is what marriage is. >> bill: why don't you understand that? >> rick santorum is a loser. but i will say rick santorum thinks about gay sex more than i do and i'm a gay man. [ laughter ] i just had four thoughts about it right now. he had 12. [ laughter ] >> bill: he does seem -- >> i don't even wear sweater vests. [ laughter ] >> shut up! >> but yours is an homage for the stroll down memory lane. [ laughter ] >> bill: he does seem to have a fixation on gay sex doesn't he? >> if you could define his life in kansas, the only thing he accomplished in this entire campaign was fixing his google problem. so now when you google rick santorum -- by definition, only the third entry on goog
consciences that's why mike huckabee and rick santorum do well in iowa. i don't think obama or romney are well suited to iowa. did i just say ohio? i meant iowa. >> iowa. >> anyway, i don't think eat of those candidates are particularly well suited because there's a strong populace strain in iowa politics. i ultimately do have it going blue if you look at the polls. romney has never led in iowa, interestingly even though as you pointsed out the democrats held a slight advantage in voting in registration numbers in 2008. they are turning out the same number in terms of early votes. they have a 60,000 vote advantage this year at this time versus in 2008 which is the same. so i think ultimately it is going to go to president obama. >> i have it going red but, again, i think we put up that chart of presidential voting history since 1972 it's picked republican president five times, a democrat president five times. guess this is like the rubber match. just quickly want to note that yesterday i laid down some smack is what i did. >> a group smack down. >> i spoke for the group. yes. when i made some
santorum all be crowned somebody who is going to get the nomination for the republican party. didn't happen. nobody picked paul ryan. nobody knew the momentum was going to swing on the first debate. so all we can do is expect the unexpected. i think that stay tuned, it will be very anti-climatic for this to go as planned. >> ben smith, where do you think the real battleground will be? a lot of people are talking about ohio, pennsylvania, florida. the democrats still saying it could not go romney's way, all these things could be pivotal to how the election washes up. where will you be focused tomorrow night? >> look, mitt romney has -- obama has a lot of paths to victory. romney has very few. they will be states like virginia, florida. if obama wins those states, pretty much over. romney needs to run the table and do well in ohio and pennsylvania. those are must-wins for him. >> charles, when you look at both campaigns from start to finish, what do you think has run the better campaign? >> i think that this campaign has been what most campaigns are, a series of ups and downs for both sides,
, originally with rick santorum. graciously shoved him aside when it looks like this. foster friess, what you make of the knights of our? >> it is like when my four kids arrived. excited about the new challenges, but concerned that something could go wrong during the delivery. i have kind of miss the vote here. i thought it would be a large win for governor romney. now he says -- i mean, i couldn't believe that that couldn't ripple through the fox business community and really heard the large percentage of the black votes that president obama gets. neil: when you make of the market -- i don't know if it is in response to the future is better timely right now, getting all the cast gains in the market back -- can be connected to? would you glean the markets as disappointing with an obama win tonight we met how would you describe that? >> in my investment career, actual people never to invest in the stock market. to invest in individual companies. the market is such an emotional thing. right now, we have time to market where it is not determined by which stocks are good and bad and they differen
senator rick santorum who battled mitt romney deep into the primary, former governor mike huckabee who ran for president four years ago and the past two republican running mates, congressman paul ryan and former alaska governor sarah palin. as for the democrats, the vice president keeps dropping hints of running again for president. here's joe biden from election day. >> next time goug to vote for yourself? >> i don't think so. >> even though she keeps saying no to running, there are tons of democrats who hope secretary of state hillary clin will eventually say yes. as for the new names, keep your eyes on maryland governor martin o'malley and new york governor andrew cuomo. now i can keep going. we don't have the time. if you think i'm jumping the gun, listen to this reputable guy. >> the political news junkies like me, it's never too early to think about ohio, new hampshire, and all the rest. >> reporter: call this the beginnings of the preseason when white house contenders write books, start up packs, campaign for fellow candidates and start building up friends in the early primary and c
of south dakota, former governor jeb bush of florida, former senator rick santorum. former governor mike huckabee who ran for president four years ago and the past two republican running mates, congressman paul ryan and former alaska governor sarah palin. as for the democrats the vice president keeps dropping hints of running again for president. here's joe biden from election day. >> are you going to vote for yourself today? >> i don't think so. >> and even though she keeps saying no to running there are hopes that secretary of state hillary clinton will eventually say yes. as for new names keep your eyes on martin o'malley and governor andrew cuomo. i can keep going, but i don't have time. if you think i'm jumping the gun, listen to this political guy. >> for news junkies like me it's never too early to think about iowa and new hampshire and all of the rest. >> when pos contenders write books, start candidates and build friends early in the caucus states. randi? >> thank you very much. >>> several veterans who served in iraq and afghanistan are celebrating their 2012 victory. in fact,
had not had a super pac which would have been running against rick santorum. if your hillary clinton or andrew cuomo, not saying these people are running, but jeb bush, marco rubio, pick your candidate -- it is not about could we win iowa, could we build a grass-roots campaign? what is your platform? not saying this candidates will not have to do that, but if you do not have a super pac game that is huge you are not going to be able to win your party nomination. that is it really disturbing trend. >> in any given competitive congressional campaign in the country the candidate committee, the actual campaign of the guy running for office or the woman running for office, has the smallest voice in the race with regard to the outside groups. it is increasingly true in senate races. it is increasingly true even in the presidential race. a brief follow up to that -- to talk about the senate and congressional and presidential races. is this kind of technique that was owned and endorsed by the supreme court and so on in this election, presidential election, going to have any effect on issue c
? the answer will be, the other choices were rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum. at the end of the day, the tea party had spoken. so they nominated mitt romney. >> you heard maher joking that romney is so out of touch he's from outer space. check out this tweet from john kerry. quote, surprised to run into mitt in ohio, a snapshot of some makeshift robot. and actor will farrell stepped up his campaign for obama in a new web video with a list of questionable incentives to encourage people to vote. >> if you agree to vote in this year's election i will personally give you a tattoo. fair warning, i do not know how to draw. i'll do a dance just for you. that was just a taste. if you want the full buffet, you're going to have to vote. if you vote, i'll eat anything you tell me to. garbage, hair, human under -- human toe nails. underpants. i don't care. vote obama. it's a slam dunk. i made you this. it's an owl. who, who. >> convinced? up next, clinton the closer. if president obama wins on tuesday night, he can thank former president bill clinton. he may be the one to push president obama o
he had his back to the wall with rick perry, newt gingrich, rick santorum, you saw this sort of pattern. the fact checker at the waup has been -- "washington post" has been able to quantify this and he's at newt gingrich levels of honesty. >> oh, my goodness. >> president obama has gotten his share of pinocchios as well, but he's well within the range of normal politics. what romney has been doing here seems to be on a whole other plane, and that is to take something that is known to be false, it's been demonstrated to be false, retreat from it and go right back out and do it again. >> it's brilliant. toure, i mentioned earlier the fear that's been caused by these romney falsehoods about these workers losing their jobs. let's listen to how the president responded to that. >> you've got folks who work at the jeep plant who have been calling their employers worried asking is it true, are our jobs being shipped to china? and the reason they're making these calls is because governor romney has been running an ad that says so. >> how are we supposed to trust a person who wants to
caucuses identify themselves as evangelicals. they supported rick santorum over romney, many uneasy on romney's past on issues like abortion and his mormon faith. >> but that was then. you said the romney campaign snubbed social conservatives. >> i think he has proved to himself that he's tried to make that out reach to social conservatives as well as economic conservatives. he's daone a good job here in iowa. >> iowa's evangelical voters seem to have moved into mitt romney's camp. the president may place more of a challenge. the catholic voters we spoke with here are split over issues like abortion, funding for contraception, and the government's role in providing for the poor. >> the life issues which many catholics, most catholics, hold dear and central to their faith, but then there's this belief that remains that the democratic party somehow cares for the poor better. i think it comes down to that tension. >> reporter: how big a role does your catholic religion play in your vote? >> i think it's big. i'm an ex-nun. and the group of nuns i'm associated with to this day are pushi
huckabee and rick santorum and others who are thinking about running for president next time. people are going to have to choose up sides and if president obama is leading those negotiations it's going to be an obama deal so for a lot of republicans in congress and around the country they're against it no matter what. they don't care what percentage of the vote he got, how big his mandate is, they'll be against it because it will have revenue in it, new revenue, and they'll be against it. >> rose: because it is -- that vote is influenced by how they perceive the battle they are making for the control of the republican party? >> and they don't like him and anything he stands for and his victory won't change that. and choosing up sides there will tell you a lot about how people are going to approach going forward the next four years of an obama presidency and the fight to redefine the republican party. >> it's going to be -- i mean, regardless of what happens tomorrow i think we come out of this pretty much where we went into it and that's what makes it very disheartening, frankly, as
of mitt romney versus his primary supporter rick santorum. evangelical voters weren't as supportive of mitt romney early on. there were class divides. we're looking at the demographic data because that's one thing the president's team has made clear they're relying on to turn out the vote for him, the demographic groups that tend to back him. younger voters, african-americans, younger women. they do really inform the types of people you're out to get at the polls. sometimes, for example, there's the health care... 50% of voters favored repealing some or all of obama care. that shows it's a divided country but that doesn't suggest who will win tonight. >> i think we ought to em fa that these exit polls have been done for many years. we have had trouble in some years. i don't expect there will be trouble this year. those of us in this business that have been doing it understand that we have to treat these very tentative lie and at the end of the day people are voting to elect the next wt and the next congress. we're really going to wait for those results to go in. these give us a litt
home, governor. and people like gingrich and santorum were warning about that last year. it's always easy to look back and hindsight is 2020. a lot of them were concerned that a more establishment type like mitt romney would not do that type of aggressive messaging on conservative issues that, for instance, won in 2010. and that have been so successful in various governors races as well. >> two things i want to mention. first, i do want to say i think mitt romney gave it his very best. he worked hard, he worked his heart out. i have got no criticisms of mitt romney. if anybody would want to criticize mitt romney. he was my opponent four years ago when we both ran. you know, i can probably find a way to do it. i'm not going to. i worked hard for him because he was the nominee. i think that's what we do as republicans. once we get a nominee. we close in the ranks and we help him. >> he also learned from campaigns that failed. he didn't get as many of the mormon vote as john mccain did, governor. i mean -- >> -- i don't understand that. >> laura: we're beyond kind of niceties at this po
governor jeb bush of florida and rick santorum who battled mitt romney deep into this year's primaries. former governor mike hucka bewho ran for president four years ago and the past two republican running mates congressman paul ryan and sarah palin. as for the democrats, the vice president keeps dropping hints of running again for president. even though she keeps saying no to running, there are tons of democrats that hope she'll eventually say yes. as for new names keep your eyes on martin o'malley and new york governor andrew cuomo. ki keep going, but we don't have the time. if you think i'm jumping the gun, listen to this reputable guy. >> the political news jurnkys like me, it's too early to start thinking about iowa, new hampshire, and all of the rest. >> call this the beginnings of the preseason whether possible white house contenders write books, start out pacs, filibuster for candidates, and start building up friends in the early primary and caucus states. randy. >> paul stein hauzer, thank you very much. >>> well, in some places you can be locked up, executed, or attacked for
of rick santorum. i don't know why he think its is an urgent national security issue and why the republican party is doubling down on issues like this. it is a serious moral position. i think the fact on this issue the country is closely divided, and there is no evidence to suggest that it would disqualify the elected president of the united states but surely we must understand the position. particularly suburban and young women do not want to hear lectures on contraception from old white republicans. we are the women in government party. we see it too often from the leadership in washington a version of big conservatism where the government is peering through the windows into matters of sexual orientation, lifestyle choices and contraception. when you have people talking about the individual mandate and screaming about tyrany and we are on 1,000 years of darkness. at the same time we are voting in people in state legislatures that are mandating -- it does not add up or make sense and it is being rejected and it will continue to be rejected across the country. if you look at
, and contributor and former communications direct or to senator rick santorum, robert trainham. let's talk twinkies. just kidding. i just have that on my mind. i want to talk about the party, beth, and you spent a long time before coming to washington in florida. let's talk about marco rubio's role. we'll talk about bobby jindal but marco rubio just happened to go to iowa. what a great guy. this is someone who has national aspirations clearly. from your close read on him, is he someone who can make that leap? he went from the state legislature to the u.s. senate seamlessly. going from senate to presidential candidate is another. does he have it in him? >> if you watch marco rubio speak, not necessarily the speech in iowa -- >> this is what you would expect a republican to say. >> but the convention speech where he's giving it the full treatment, i mean, there are very few politicians that can do what he can do which is make an audience feel something. he can really connect. he's really everything that mitt romney was not able to do. >> i totally agree and i think you wind up in some ways fight the
. i think his difficulties began a long time ago and that was in the form of rick santorum and rick perry and newt gingrich forcing him to become a much more conservative candidate than he needed to be or presumably wanted to be but what he had to do to win the nomination and what we've seen in the last six months or so since then is his efforts somewhat halting to walk away from all of that. now, the election is -- people are still voting right now. this man could still be the next president. we have to keep that in mind but it's been a torturous route to get to this evening. >> indeed. ari, we talk about mitt romney as a character, but people say you can tell a man by the company he keeps. if i introduced you to a man who is endorsed by individuals as grotesque as donald rumtrump, a poison us as john sununu would you say that man was on the way to the white house or is that the kabs of a snuff movie. >> the problem was the clown car of the republican party, that was the sort of first test of mitt romney's ability to stand up for himself and his own record, and then as you say, in
's unlikely. there's two big problems. one is what rick santorum said during the primary campaign was right. that actually room any is the worst republican candidate to run against barack obama. secondly, there's the issue of president obama has run an incredibly effective campaign with the exception of the first debate, his campaign is effective in targeting mitt romney from the beginning and they painted him into a corner and held his positions against him. now the mathematically it's difficult for romney to win right now. this is not just a question about nate silver and everybody else. obama is leading in seven of the nine swing states. romney has to win at least five of those swing states in order to win the election. he's nowhere near that right now. so in order for romney to win, almost all of the swing state polls have to be almost completely wrong, and that's unlikely. >> let me read what "the new york times" put in their article today. as the night unfolds, clues to the outcome will spill out. if exit polling indicates that mr. romney is exceeding the share of white vote that went
